Vol football preview special 'Tennessee Tailgate 2014' airs Wednesday on WATE


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - UT football season is less than a week away and 6 News is getting ready for a celebration of our own.

We'll be out on the lawn of Greystone Wednesday night with the grill fired up and the tunes cranked up, getting fans excited to watch the Big Orange take the field.

Tennessee Tailgate 2014 airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. on WATE. 

Among the highlights of the special: Jillian Mahen sits down with Head Coach Butch Jones, we'll join the Vol Navy, get a preview of the new band director, preview UT's first competitor Utah State, meet new "Voice of Neyland" Jeff Jarnigan, and take a look at how the UT football team stays fit. 

The UT Pride of the Southland Band and cheerleaders will be also here at the 6 News studios with some tunes.

We're asking you to send us pictures of friends and fans decked out in your orange. Post them to our 6 News Facebook page.

You can tweet along with the show using the hashtag #6TNTailgate.
